Hi My Friends,
No, I wasn’t in an accident or stuck on the freeway thank DOG (if you read David’s post from Skeptic’s Kaddish you’ll understand) but this was fun to get.
I have seen this maybe once before in my comments and the next day when I looked for it, it was gone, so I decided to take a screen shot this time. I’ve seen it many times on other peoples posts but not often mine, so it was so much fun to see. I have to give credit to all of my friends who have been giving me such heartfelt reviews on their blogs! Thank you to all of you for helping get my book RE-CREATE & CELEBRATE into the world. I cannot thank you enough.
Stay the course
Cross the finish line
Satisfaction comesCindy Georgakas
Your blog, Unique Times, appears to be getting more traffic than usual! 76 hourly views – 8 hourly views on average
A spike in your stats
I truly appreciate all of you who have given my book a read and are continuing to do so. It’s the only way to get the word of Self Care and Happiness into the world. Every one of your purchases does not go unnoticed and it is my hope to spread happiness and hope in difficult times for everyone.
As I was cleaning up last night, I ran across this below (please excuse the messy writing). It was from when I began The 7 Day Challenge to Write your Book at Hay House Publishing who publishes self help, inspirational and transformational books and products. Hay House is a publisher founded in 1984 by author Louise Hay, who is known for her books on New Thought.
You had to find your book title and hook in 7 days which is their hook to get you into their year long Writers Community. How’s that for great marketing! Reid Tracy runs the organization and Kelly Notaras, founder and Author from KN Literary Publishing house KN Literary Arts runs the Writers Community group. She also wrote THE BOOK YOU WERE BORN TO WRITE. I mention Kelly in my book. Do check them out as they do great work.
I want to share this with you in the hopes that you too can put your word in the world. I wrote this in 2020 and note that I dream big and am in the “GOT THE BOOK OUT PHASE” which was big for me. With your help we can get it to a #1 release, fingers crossed.
Keep dreaming and sharing your message whatever it is. My book RE-CREATE & CELEBRATE is designed to help you every step of the way! Please keep those review coming on Amazon, if you would be so kind.
Many thanks to Barbara Harris Leonhard and Grace Y. Estevez-Reddy for providing the latest advance reviews of Re-Create & Celebrate. I’ve included some highlights below, with links to the full reviews:
In these uncertain times, we could use guidance, support, a way to center in our being. This book offers readers tools to converse with our authentic self and manifest our soul’s purpose with grace and ease. — Barbara Harris Leonhard, MasticadoresUSA
Recreate and Celebrate by Cindy Geogakas is an insightful book that has the potential to change people’s lives…I would highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a well defined approach for moving forward in life. — Grace of the Sun
Cindy’s book takes us on an inner journey of discovery. She says, “The key to life is being open to receive what is already there waiting for you to hear and understand.” This great book will open your eyes to new possibilities in your life. — Dwight L. Roth, poet and friend
I’ll share more coming soon.

Congrats my dear friend ❤️
Thanks so much Sadje!! 💗
My pleasure dear Cindy
I appreciate that!! ❣️
So proud of you! See, told you this was going to be your year 😉
Awwww thanks Pooja!! Now tell me how many of these have you gotten? Probs too many to mention. I love the sound of that. I think you’re right and I’m ready! Much appreciated! ❣️
You’re so welcome! 💖
Great to read how the book got started, Cindy 🤩
Thanks so much Ingrid!! We covered so much but I guess we never got to that part. 💞
I’ve never gotten one of those. Congrats!
I’m surprised Jacqui since you are such a master author. You will I’m sure but save it when you do because it’s like invisible ink. Thanks it was fun! 💞
thank you sharing your wonderful journey with us, Cindy.
You inspire 🎉🤍
Thank you so very much Destiny!!! I so much appreciate it!!!! I’m glad it’s inspiring to you!! ❣️
most welcome 🤍✨
Wonderful, congratulations dear Cindy, I’m very happy for you!!! 🥰❤️🌹💖🤗
I’m most grateful for your kind congratulations Giada
Thanks and have a great day 💞❣️🥰😀🌹
Thank you infinitely from my heart dear, you are most welcome!!! Have a wonderful day!! 🥰❤️🤗💕💖
I am and will and you as well.. xo 💗
Congratulations, Cindy. Your book tour is a busy one! Awesome. Kudos for the great reviews.
I like your sharing of your vision board, the written pages that became your book, and a few years later….became your dream fulfilled…exciting proof that dreams do come true…yayyyy!
I Suzette… I echo that and the reviewers have done a great job sharing the news. Oh I’m so glad you liked my messy writing. I so believe and agree with vision boards .. they do work for sure. Thanks for pointing this out dear Suzette!! ❣️
Always a pleasure, Cindy. Sending much love to you!
Aww thanks so much Suzette. Received with love and back at you! 💗
Wonderful, Cindy. Congratulations!💕💕💕
Thank you very much Grace!!💞
You are so welcome 💕
Stay the course
Cross the finish line
I’m there! I suspect that we are in about the same head space, Cindy. I’m sure some of this has to do with age and the realization that if we want to make things happen, there’s no time like the present. I was a shy kid, but I haven’t been that person in a long time. I like this version of myself better. It’s graduation season, so I’m reminded of many students I taught who I encouraged to chase their dreams with fearlessness. I’d be a hypocrite if I didn’t do the same.
I just sent off my manuscript off to my editor earlier this week, and I’m determined to get to the finish line. It’s never been about becoming rich or famous for me; it’s about having pride in working hard at something and having the perseverance to hang in there and get to the finish line.
Best of luck to you. Not that I’ll probably get to it anytime soon since I already have 200 unread books on my Kindle, but I’ll pick up your book later today when I do my next Amazon order. (You’re here again, Springer???) 🤣
I just love this being kindred spirits in the mission of sharing our message. You nailed it exactly, age and stage and I do talk about that in my book funny enough. You’re so right about sharing our word. You as a teacher and me as a Life Fitness Coach always encouraging them and now wanting to share our word with the world.
Oh good for you as you are on the journey and it’s an exciting process for sure. I feel the exact same way about my mission in getting the word out. It’s who I am and I do want to help as many people as I can. You’ll make it and I’m happy to be a cheerleader in your wonderful endeavor and I’m so appreciative of you being one for me.
The funny thing is, I just realized the importance of why and who I wrote this book for aside from people who are ready to see results in their lives. It’s deeply fulfilling.
You sound like me.. a book junkie but mine are print copy which makes for bigger storage. I’m soooo grateful you are going to make your purchase today. Thank you truly so very much!! I can’t wait to hear what you think. 🤣 (You’re here again, Springer???) 🤣
I am very happy for you! Many congratulations!! 🤗😊😊
You are so kind Collin. Thank you so very much!!! 🙏🏼💗
Not at all Cindy, you truly deserve all the plaudits and high acknowledgement!!! 🙏🤗🤗
I am deeply humbled Collin, 🙏🏼. I hope you’ll give it a read. 💞
Congratulations and always best wishes for you, the site and book
I don’t think I will tire of saying congratulations, my friend! So proud of you, so happy for you and so grateful to know you. From my heart to yours 🤗💖
Oh that is so sweet Helen because the tour ain’t over until it’s over.. lol Your praise and being proud of me means so much, truly!!! I feel the same about you! I hope you end up reading it and can’t wait to hear what you think. Thanks my friend!!! 🙏🏼💞
I will surely let you know what I think of the book! You are so welcome. 🤗💖
Oh Yippee.❣️ Most appreciated! 🙏🏼
Congratulations, Cindy! I’m so happy for you. You inspire others. The tour is still on. Keep shining ✨⚡️💐
Thanks KK.. I appreciate that! I know, “the never ending blog tour” is almost over.. lol❣️ Thanks for not tiring of it my friend! 💗
Not at all, I feel happy and energised to be with you on your tour. Keep shining, my friend 💪💐💖
Oh that is so very kind. Thank you so very much!!! 🙏🏼
Girlfriend, your haiku lays it out in a nutshell. Yes girlfriend, continue to stay the course and deliberate in your strategy. Bravo, bravo, bravo! Continue on your successful journey dawwwwlinkkkk! The word is out! 😘💞🌞🥂🥰 You are shifting your gears smoothly and BTW, I love your list that validated your goals! Sweet! 🙏🏼
Oh thanks so much Kym. I’m glad you liked that my friend. I’m most appreciative of you being here every step of the way and I’m glad I’m lightening the reins and shifting the gears well. Glad you liked my list that was so cool to see last night. I forgot I wrote it!
Awww girl, but when you write something down in your own handwriting, you tend to absorb that visual better and you didn’t forget it. How cool is that? 🤗💖😊 It’s magical!
That is soooo true Kym. I’m so kinesthetic too so that truly helps, I so agree. It really is. Can’t wait to see what you got today and do check your inbox when you get time! 💞 Well not yet, but will make up for late replies. 💗
Awww girlfriend, please don’t worry about that. You know I understand…unconditionally!!! Stay focused on what you must do. I’m still here girlfriend! 🤗💖😍
I totally understand my friend. I appreciate that, thanks so much!! 💗
You are so very welcome my Energizer Mama! Enjoy your ride! 🤗💖😍✨🥰🥂
Thanks so much my friend!! 💞
Oh girlfriend, dawwwlinkkkk, and our great Energizer, you know it is always my pleasure! 🙏🏼😘💖😎✨ Muah!
I do know and that’s why I love you so! 💗
Awww, you are simply the best Cindy dawwwwlinkkk! Better than all the rest! 😊🙏🏼🤗💖🥰🍷 Love you more! Hugs and smooches.
And are you my friend!!! Sooo to the moon and back dear heart!! 🙏🏼🥰
You are so awesome girlfriend. Stay that way! Hugs! 🥰🍸😍🥂🤗🍹😘
Thank you Kymmmmdawwwwlink! 🙏🏼 you too! 😘
It’s always fun to see the ‘more traffic’ sign. And it isn’t always clear why. 😳 Sometimes people pick up and share something I’ve written years ago. Anyway, congrats!
Oh that’s fun Curt that you’ve gotten them too. It’s been a long while. Never clear for sure. Most appreciated!! Not sure if you read the version of all of the mistakes earlier (was running out (late) again, for a client) or the ones I just fixed❣️😝
I sooo love this!! I’ve seen this before too, rarely, the “spike in your stats” message from WordPress. It is so thrilling!!!
And in one of your reviews they mention being “open to receive” and that wholly resonates with me, as that was the title of my chapter in the first co-authored book I wrote! Haha! Giddy here!!!
It’s is exactly that.. Sheila! fun for sure. Absolutely and I love you have a chapter over that nugget! I love it!!! Giddy is good! ❣️
